don't think so, no...
the only case where it does is when you got nothing to do and you don't wanna look like a loser who's just standing there doing nothing, you can smoke, so you look like you have a purpose.

I use to dip as a teen & till i was like 20 and dont think it ever gave me confidence, that just came natural haha totally kidding. in all seriousness I might have one every few months and i just get a "buzz" from it so maybe some would relate that to confidence

Confident in what? That your lungs are being damaged long term. Not to mention the vasular risk.

If cigarettes give you confidence, you are stupid and still have some teen age complexes left over.

Especially main stream cigs (Like Marlboro & New Port.) WTF! I MEAN WTF. HOW ARE THEY ALLOWED TO MARKET THIS SHIT?!

But organic Marijuana, thats illegal. Probably because we dont put ammonia and cyanide in our weed like big tobacco does to keep you addicted.

I smoked for 13 years. It gives you momentary confidence but it's an illusion: you feel confident as your nicotine hit removes the anxiousness/stress of waiting for your next smoke.

I'm a social smoker, sometimes a light smoker and sometimes very heavy. I have found that nicotine does give you confidence, but there's a cost for everything.

I would describe it as "focus" rather than "confidence". Improved stamina without fear of smoking related health risks WILL give you CONFIDENCE.
